Natasha Richardson, Forage Botanicals
+ Describe your work in 5 words.
Natural. Seasonal. Self-care. Periods. Botanical.
+ What are the most important changes we should make as individuals or as a society to build a sustainable economy that has utmost respect for all beings and Mother Earth?
I believe that if we learnt about the utility of the plants that surround us we would be more inclined to protect it. I teach women to use botanical extracts and natural cosmetics to create self-care rituals for a better period.
+ Why is it important to awaken the feminine power & how could we go about it?
We have been brain washed to believe that the unique experiences we have as women - periods, child birth and menopause, are all terrible. We have to reclaim those experiences and educate ourselves (and people without periods) about their positive traits.
+ How would you contribute to empowering female leaders, entrepreneurs, visionaries and change makers?
As a herbalist I am uniquely qualified to talk about how you can use plants to align yourself with the seasons and your menstrual cycle.
